About the Book

Book title: Wheresoever They May Be

Wheresoever They May BeAuthor: Terri Wangard

Release date: August 30, 2017
Genre: Historical – World War II
Lily Swanson longs to be a mother. Soon Frank should be home for good and they can furnish a nursery. Maybe even find a bigger house.
Joe Gallagher grew up in a small house with plenty of siblings. He loves the solitude of flying, but the war has dragged on for so long. He’s ready to go home.
Susan Talbot has a bad attitude. She’s estranged from her family and she doesn’t attract friends. But war can bring out the best in people and Susan’s surprised to realize she’s happy.
They all do their part in striving for victory in World War II. Sometimes, though, the danger can be hard to identify.


Teri Wangard is a new author to me.
I love her ability to make me smile, hold my breath, and cry whatever the scene may be about at the time.
I will add her to my list of faves to read. 
I also love some of the bible verses the author has put in there.
Psalm 23 is personally my favorite. 
One verse stands out to me and it's Romans 8:8 There is therefore now NO condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. I feel blessed!
I can relate to the 2nd WW. My granfather fought the Germans. Years later I found all kinds of neat stuff among his discharge papers. An honorable discharge I might add. 
My grandpa told the most amazing " stories" changing them each time lol
My grandma worked in the plastic co same as my grandpa before the war.
They too had to ration.
I love history. I admire the men who fought for freedom. 
I enjoyed Lily's story. She is much like my grandma in many ways. Doing what needed to be done in order to help win the war.
Joe is an interesting person to get to know. I loved being in the plane (even tho I'm scared of heights like Pearl) Imagine getting to see from a different view!!
Much action packed in this novel if you have a love of the WW2. 
This book can be made into a movie too!! I enjoyed this book so much!!
I received this book for free. No compensation was received and all opinions are my own

Guest Post from Terri Wangard

After eight years of thinking, breathing, researching B-17s, I was ready to disembark and concentrate on something else. But what? I had a vague idea of three friends who joined the WAC, the WAVES, and the WASPs, but nothing crystalized. Except for the WAC.

I didn’t want to completely turn away from flying, and I prefer topics that aren’t commonly known. How about a grasshopper pilot? My second character was on board.

I had toyed with the idea of a family generational series. A World War II story paired with a World War I story. But no, too unwieldy.
The WAC could have a sister, though, who stayed on the home front and did factory work. Oh, dear. I couldn’t completely stay away from B-17s. She’s building them.
She also needs a husband. He’ll be in the navy, and not on an aircraft carrier. A destroyer! (This was in the works before Sarah Sundin signed a contract for her just-concluded series about destroyer men. I checked with her: She was writing about the Atlantic war; my guy’s in the Pacific. No problem.) I studied the list of Pacific destroyers and, oooh, the Spence. All kinds of possibilities there.
So there I had it: a sailor, his Rosie-the-Riveter wife, her WAC sister, and a grasshopper pilot. They’re all doing their part to help win the war, but sometimes the enemy isn’t obvious.
